Hurricane Fiona: Environment Canada gives update as "historic storm" nears | LIVE

CA, 23 Sep 2022
Canadian Hurricane Centre meteorologist Bob Robichaud is expected to provide an update on Hurricane Fiona on Friday as warnings have been issued across eastern Canada as it hurtles toward the region.

It's slated to make landfall in Nova Scotia as a powerful post-tropical storm early Saturday morning.

Shortly after 11 a.m. Friday, the province issued an emergency alert warning of “damaging winds, heavy rain, and dangerous storm surge.”

“Stay indoors. Avoid the coastline and rivers,” it said. “Charge devices and have enough supplies for at least 72 hours. Listen for further updates from officials.”

According to the latest forecast guidance, Hurricane Fiona is expected to move northward across Nova Scotia waters Friday night, passing through Cape Breton Saturday morning, then reaching the Quebec lower north shore and southeastern Labrador early Sunday.
